  CancerGuide: The Median Isn't the Message
If I line up five kids by height, the median child is shorter than two and taller than the other two (who might have trouble getting their mean share of the candy).
In short, we view means and medians as the hard "realities,"; and the variation that permits their calculation as a set of transient and imperfect measurements of this hidden essence.
If the median is the reality and variation around the median just a device for its calculation, the "I will probably be dead in eight months" may pass as a reasonable interpretation.

 Median - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In probability theory and statistics, the median is a number that separates the higher half of a sample, a population, or a probability distribution from the lower half.
The median of a uniform distribution in the interval [a, b] is (a + b) / 2, which is also the mean.
The median is 2 in this case, as is the mode, and it might be seen as a better indication of central tendency than the arithmetic mean of 3.166….

 Statistics: Power from Data! Calculating the median
The median value corresponds to a cumulative percentage of 50% (i.e., 50% of the values are below the median and 50% of the values are above the median).
The median is usually calculated for numeric variables, but may also be calculated for other sequenced variables of a categorical nature, such as the categories in a satisfaction survey: excellent, good, satisfactory and poor.
The median obtained from the cumulative frequency graph (164 cm) is not the same value as the median obtained from the calculation in Example 4 (163.9 cm) or from the stem and leaf plot (163.5 cm).

 Median   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The median is the middle of a distribution: half the scores are above the median and half are below the median.
The median is less sensitive to extreme scores than the mean and this makes it a better measure than the mean for highly skewed distributions.
The mean, median, and mode are equal in symmetric distributions.

 Spatial Filters - Median Filter
Like the mean filter, the median filter considers each pixel in the image in turn and looks at its nearby neighbours to decide whether or not it is representative of its surroundings.
Since the median value must actually be the value of one of the pixels in the neighbourhood, the median filter does not create new unrealistic pixel values when the filter straddles an edge.
The median filter is sometimes not as subjectively good at dealing with large amounts of Gaussian noise as the mean filter.

 Medes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In time, the Mesopotamian-influenced religion of the Magi was suppressed in favour of a more purely Iranian form of Zoroastrianism, itself evolved from its somewhat dualist beginnings into the monotheistic faith that it is today (also known as Parsi-ism).
Herotodus also mentions that "the Medes had exactly the same equipment as the Persians; and indeed the dress common to both is not so much Persian as Median." (7.62) "These Medes were called anciently by all people Arians; but when Media, the Colchian, came to them from Athens, they changed their name.
In spite of repeated rebellions by the early chieftains against the Assyrian yoke, the Medes paid tribute to Assyria under Sargon's successors, Sennacherib, Esarhaddon and Ashurbanipal, whenever these kings marched in with their fierce armies.

 Median Filtering   (Site not responding. Last check: )
When performing median filtering, each pixel is determined by the median value of all pixels in a selected neighborhood (mask, template, window).
The median value m of a population (set of pixels in a neighborhood) is that value in which half of the population has smaller values than m, and the other half has larger values than m.
Also shown are the median filtering results using 3x3 and 5x5 windows; three (3) iterations of 3x3 median filter applied to the noisy image; and finally for comparison, the result when applying a 5x5 mean filter to the noisy image.

 History of Iran: Median Empire
Traditionally, the creator of the Median kingdom was one Deioces, who, according to Herodotus, reigned from 728 to 675 BCE and founded the Median capital Ecbatana (Hâgmatâna or modern Hamadan).
To judge from the Assyrian sources, no Median kingdom such as Herodotus describes for the reign of Deioces existed in the early 7th century BCE; at best, he is reporting a Median legend of the founding of their kingdom.
Indeed, Astyages and the Medians were soon overthrown by the rise to power in the Iranian world of Cyrus II the Great.

The median for a set of data is the value that is exactly in the center.
Since the median uses only the value or values in the center of the list, the outliers are not used.
The median is used in cases where extreme outliers occur, like real estate prices (there are some really expensive houses) and household income (some people make a lot of money).

 The Individualist: Median
In probability theory and statistics, a median is a number dividing the higher half of a sample, a population, or a probability distribution from the lower half.
But the median amount is $5, since one may divide the group into two groups of 10 persons each, and say that everyone in the first group brought in no more than $5, and each person in the second group brought in no less than $5.
When the median is used as a location parameter in descriptive statistics, there are several choices for a measure of variability: the range, the interquartile range, and the absolute deviation.

 MRN
Small lesions or drug injections into the median raphe produce a dramatic behavioral syndrome characterized by astonishingly pronounced hyperactivity, large increases in food and water intake and sexual behavior and a pattern of disturbances in learning and memory situations similar to seen after damage to the hippocampus.
The raphe nuclei are best known as one of the major sources of serotonergic projections to the forebrain, but we have amassed a large body of evidence suggesting that the behavioral effects of raphe manipulations are not due to interference with serotonergic function.
It would thus seem that there is an as of yet unidentified neural system present within the region of the median raphe which exerts an exceptionally powerful influence over a wide variety of behaviors.

 Twin Cities median home price ekes out a 0.5% gain for 2006
Metrowide, the median sale price of single-family houses, condos and townhouses sold through the Regional Multiple Listing Service rose just 0.5 percent for the year, from $228,900 in 2005 to $230,000 in 2006.
That was the smallest increase since the association began tracking median sale prices in 1998 and a startling contrast to the record increases of recent years.
Median sale prices show only what's happening in a broad market; extrapolating to determine the value of homes in a particular community can be futile because markets are highly localized.
